(Blank Space)



(Blank Space)











Do you notice
the blank space
above..?

The words 
you are reading
diminish
the message
above..

Here are 
more words and
more
diminishment..

You are invited 
to erase the 
words and
Return...







Joy in hiding



Joy in hiding

This is
the mind obstacle
That those on the path
Find tough to encounter..
Some continue on a bypass
Over and around..

Others gently penetrate
The toughness itself
Gazing around 
Finding intense coloring
But no diminishing of
Wholeness by that
Threatening something..

Returning to the bypass
These others are routed
Directly to knowing
That which they and
Everything are
Uncolored and Infinite..

These are two paths to
Uncover the Joy that
Seemed to be hiding
Until now...

Self-Recognition



Self-Recognition

We journey the world
With diligence and hope
Overturning many stones
Seeking a situation
To end our desire
Our desire for home..

It is open to question
Whether this one or that
Will end their desire
With a simple
Self-Recognition...

Lucid Waking






















Lucid Waking

explorers
in lucid dreaming
find an experience of
Self Reccognition..
A special gift..

As these dreamers
shift from character
to dreamer..a
revolution occurs
revealing their clear 
Identity as both
dreamer and dreamed..

What remains..?
To recognize now
the same showing
upon waking
this bright morning
in lucid waking...


Making Art





























“When we show up to make art, we need to get still enough to hear what wants to be expressed though us, and then we need to step out of the way and let it. We must be willing to abide in a space of not knowing before we can settle into knowing." pg. 159”

Sacred Outrage



Sacred Outrage

All is well
All is love
Made of love
So..what's the worry..?
Or..the outrage..?
A quandry arises
The above seems both
True and False..

We witness suffering
And cries for help
Not to be ignored..
Resistance rises
Action asserts
But now something new 
Ancient separation subsides 
As Sacred outrage
Blossoms...

Row your boat



Row your boat

gently
and find yourself
in a dream..

going with
the flow..
effortlessly..
paddles  stowed
singing of a dream..
then of a sudden
singing As a dream..

recognizing now
boat and paddles
 stream and you
are the dream..

Who is dreaming...?
